Posterior Placenta Previa Pregnancy
My ob says that having posterior marginal placenta previa is good news rather than it being anterior.. Is that true ?
Yes : Placenta previa is never good news, but the cesarean delivery is easier if we don't need to deliver through the placenta. An anterior placenta previa for someone with a previous cesarean section can be a very difficult delivery. You will want to recheck the placenta position closer to term if this was seen on an early sonogram. ...Read more

I'm 19 weeks of gestation with complete placenta previa, can I take Duvadilan as a tocolytics?
Provided that I had painless bleeding one week ago.
Unlikely: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri.

I was just diagnosed with placenta previa. I'm 15 weeks. Will my baby survive and what am I looking at for the rest of my pregnancy?
You'll be okay: Placenta previa at 15 weeks is VERY common. You'll have another "formal" ultrasound at 18-20 weeks during which your doctor/ultrasonographer will look at all of baby's anatomy, and the placenta again. Sometimes placenta previas move out of the way of cervix as uterus grows. Even if it doesn't all you have to do is NO intercourse or orgasms. Go to L&D if have bleeding.Follow all doctors' instruct ...Read more
